There is no meaning to light it in other events, its is not a circus Thanks god there are a lot of fireworks for the other events, no need to put an olympic flame in anything to become important
hey I know that the flame was sappose to be a big artistic thing but in my opinion it look like a giant marijoana joint lol. Just look at it for 3 seconds and you will see what i mean. Man all these weird subliminal messages are going on lol.

He was just asking, no need to berate him. If the cauldron is still there, then why not use it for special occasions?

Anyway, the Olympic Stadium in Athens, made an architectural landmark by Spanish architect Calatrava, is one of my favourites too.

I thought it's the Estadio Monumental Isidro Romero Carbo but behind the goals it looks different.

You can't see what's behind the photographer, that's right. I checked it at maps.google.com: 1, Cardinals Drive, Glendale Arizona. The closest houses are 500m away, Glendale at 10km, Phoenix at 20km.

Americans drive everywhere, hence the reason they are so fat. It's normal to have a stadium in the middle of nowhere in America, as long as it has plenty of burgers and fries then your Average American will be perfectly happy to get in his pick up truck and drive there. There is no public transport as your average American can't fit through train doors.

Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium

Established 2004
Named after President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
Capacity 20,000
Floodlights Yes
The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi cost $22 million to build and is arguably one of the world's finest cricket grounds. It was opened in May 2004 and staged its first first-class match when Scotland played Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup that November.

The ground is dominated by two large stands at either end, with the areas square of the wicket offering large grass banking for spectators to sit, although during the daylight hours that might be less than appealing as there is no shade. There is no pavilion as such, with the large changing rooms under one of the stands, and teams watch from inside air-conditioned glass rooms.

The venue is about 30 minutes drive from the city centre and is located in a remote area.

Wow. That is a mighty fine stadium! I agree the USA has some great stadiums but as you pointed out most ppl won't know anything about them simply because the sports played in them isn't followed outside North America. Shame really. Again tho that stadium is soo bloody imposing.
EDIT: googled it and it's only 71,500? Seems much bigger.

Just north of the stadium is Jobing.com Arena, the indoor venue home of the Phoenix Coyotes.

By a decade, with the stadium and arena, those empty lots will be full of devolopment.
